Synopsis

Leon the chameleon has a problem. When the other little chameleons turn green, yellow or blue -- he turns red, purple or orange! Leon doesn't turn the opposite color on purpose. He just can't help it. Being different makes Leon feel lonely. One day, the little chameleons go exploring and lose their way. As the parents anxiously search for their little ones, they suddenly spot a speck of color far off in the distance. It's Leon! And thanks to his brilliant hue, the little chameleons are rescued. This time, being different makes Leon feel proud! Leon the Chameleon is a charming story that also explores the basic elements of color. At the end of the book, a color wheel displays primary colors and their complementary hues.

Watt debuts with a simple tale that is partly a celebration of physical differences and partly a lesson in color theory.

ForeWord Reviews

It’s no accident that Leon turns the opposite color to his surroundings—Watt has chosen colors that are literally opposite each other on the color wheel.
